Top Ten Reasons That Cats Are Better Than DogsNato_D9 Everybody likes pets but none of them are better than the legend of the cat. Here are the top ten reasons that cats are better than dogs
The Top Ten
THIS LIST IS THE DUMBEST THING ON EARTH. Cats and dogs are equal in reality, but people grow up with different experiences. Like me, I had two dogs and two cats. I prefer cats over dogs because I interacted with the cats more. (My cats are hypoallergenic the dogs aren't) but yeah, this list was probably made to start drama and get attention, but the truth they're equal! Some people like dogs, some will like cats and that's FINE!
The sweet purr of a cat is one of the best reason that cats are a awesome pet while dogs just wag their tail seriously? - Nato_D9
Dogs wag their tails, Cats purr. We all have ways of showing affection. Get over it. - Blight
I think that "purring" is just growling, but very low and quiet.
Oh yes, because my dogs don't purr and just nuzzle against me that must mean cats are bettter and they despise me. Everyone shows affection in their own way. - EspioTheChameleonV 5 Comments
No. Nobody heard of the Survivor Dog series because it probably sucks.
I liked survivor dog more.
My username. Enough said. - RiverClanRocks
Warriors the bettter then Survivors, but Survivors doesn't suck, loser.V 3 Comments
This is a twisted version of he truth, made for desperate Cat Lovers. It's a proven study that it's DOGS that make you less likely to die from a Heart Attack.
Your face is a twisted version made desperate for dog lovers
Okay, you obviously are a biased person who loves dogs too much.
Obviously, you are way more biased than whoever you are talking to. Dogs are better, the is no competition. Get over it. - DragonLists
You are some weird butthurt dog fan, you know. On every reason on this list I see your complaining
"NO, NO DOGS ARE BETTER because I THINK SO! WA" " I'm TOTALLY NOT TRIGGERED THAT SOME PEOPLE ACTUALLY HAVE AN OPINION DIFFERENT THAN MINE! '" And that's literally you when you speak lol. I like them equally too, but at least I'm not butthurt and biased, and I can accept other opinions.
If you think that cats just scratch and hiss at you, then you clearly either have a lack of experience or don't know how to interact with them properly, in which case I feel sorry for the cats because they would only do that if you've really upset them!
I think dogs are better than cats, only because dogs will not scratch and hiss at you.. dogs do play with you, and they were given the name "Man's Best Friend" for a reason. - KingofPawns
Cats play with you too, you know. Also, dogs can be much more dangerous than cats, in the aspect that their jaws could crush a babies skull. Not hating on dogs, but get your facts right about cats. "Man's Best Friend doesn't matter here. If you like them just because they're more social than cats, (cats can be quite social too) and if you think cats are just scratch and hiss at you all the time, you better do some researching. - dopfui
Car and kittens hiss and scratch, but when I try to pet my dog, she always tries to bite me when I done absolutely nothing! (I have a cat who is 8, a kitten who is 6 months old, and a dog who is 7.)
True. They are way cuter. - WinchesterGirl26V 17 Comments
You never owned a Dog.
Also, Cats will always aim for your eyes. There have been cases where people grew blind because of their cat.
Because they are so peaceful
You obviously don't own a cat like mine who I swear to god has a watch! Alarm set to 6am! "
It's a good thing that Dogs do. They want you to have a full, beautiful day to enjoy. The only reason Cats don't is because they don't value you, and don't care how long they go without you. Dogs love you.
Cats never do this because they don't bark at 6 AM. Someone in my neighborhood that has a dog that is just so annoying that's why cats are awesome - Nato_D9
That's because the dog wants to spend time with you!V 11 Comments
This reason is one dimensional and very irrelevant. Besides, cats don't rule the internet, humans do. Cats can't post pictures or videos of themselves, humans take the photos and videos. Plus, what about Boo, "the worlds cutest dog? " Last time I checked, he wasn't a cat. - Ku
Cats rule the internet, because all the dog people are outside with their dogs, while all the cat people are inside on the internet.
Actually, when we have Tar dar sauce, we also have Doge. - SamuiNeko
Good point I have a cat and it's true they rule the Internet everyone watched a cat video at least once in there life :P - StevenpenguinV 9 Comments
Now you wont
Because dogs are better quality.
Exactly! Cats are CHEAPER, like not the money kind, but the real kind. Cheaper, as in something that just sits around all day and begs to be petted. - DragonLists
Your face is worse quality
The only reason why so many people are arguing about dogs is that dogs have a very good reputation. The stereotypical dog is sweet, kind, never poops on the floor, and will carry their owner over a pit of molten lava. The stereotypical cat, however, is lazy, mean, and sits alone all day thinking of how it will take it's next victim. - ClovertheAverageCat
This is not proof if you see some cats can be just as mean. If you look in the news or the paper a dog attack doesn't happen everyday
DOGS ARE ONLY VIOLENT TO YOU IF YOU'RE VIOLENT TO THEM! Cats, hough, are violent to you of you want to spend time with them or pet them, or even for no reason.
My cat will never scratch you. I'm not joking, I poked his stomach, a body part that cats protect fiercely, and he just looked at me. - ClovertheAverageCat
I love both but I have gotten a nosebleed from a cute overhyped dog that tackled me whall my cats just walk up to me and rub on my legs to greet me and sleep on my lap but both cats and dogs will attack when there scared or angryV 6 Comments
I agree. But, then again, don't forget that Dogs hunt, too. The only difference is that Dogs only hunt when they need to. Cats, on the other hand, hunt for sport.
This is true, unless your cat doesn't like to or whatever. When we had my calico at our house, she caught 1 lizard inside. Outside, she's caught 5-7 lizards, 1 cardinal, 1 mouse, and 1 mole. She left the mole at our door as a little " present. " This way, you won't have to call pest control every time you see a roach or rodent.
I have the worst dog ever. I was trying to walk her and she wouldn't go b/c she was afraid of the garbage truck, and then after it left I went for like five minutes and then she went number two. She wanted to go back then b/c she was scared but the poop bag had a hole in it but she wouldn't go back so that I could clean up the poo that was in the middle of the road. Then I brought her back the house and I was, like, fuming. Then I went and cleaned up the poo and I was, like, totally embarrassed. I will never walk her again!
Dogs you have to walk them in the morning, afternoon, and night while cats either watch the outside or do whatever outside and dogs sometimes walking them sometimes tires you out. - Nato_D9
Walking yo dog gets in the way of your schedule.
Walking your dog gets you exerise people who think walking a dog is to hard are weirdV 3 Comments
At least they SEEM like they have nine lives. Did you know that cats if they fall from a tall height( maybe normal house ceiling height. ) They are able to turn around and land on their paws absorbing the fall. - Catsarah123
Cats have 1 life like dogs and whoever think they have 9 life's should really start reading some books and not wasting time with cat videos and computers 0,0
Realistically, Cats have 1 life. But, yeah, this is a cool myth to be known as x3
Uhm.. They have only one simple life just like everybody else.
But say you where on a roof (of a little shack or hut.) You threw both cat and dog
Out the window. The cat would land on it's paws. The dog would fall like a human would. So cats seemimngly live 9 times. But only live once. It's like a superpower!
I like finding Dog Toys all over the house! But if you don't, then don't get 1000 toys and then complain! It's you who bought them, right? And plus, you CAN'T say that you, as a kid, didn't leave a message. You can't. Dogs have a childish spirit. It's what makes them unique. Don't complain about it.
But you find dead birds and mice I don't mind having dog toys everywhere, but I'll pass on the road kill.
The real problem is that dogs leave disgusting chewed up and spat up toys everywhere
Didn't leave a mess*V 2 Comments
Oh yeah, sure. You don't have to. You know, you CAN just leave the Cat's terribly awful smelling business inside the litter box in your house. Feel free. And also, Cats' pee smells TERRIBLE and you can't get rid of it. But, sure! Get a Cat!
Wrong. Cats use the litter box. And you also have to buy kitty litter. - nintendofan126
This is way false sure they may pee on the floor but you can train me to go outside. Who wants cat poop in a box in they're house
You have to clean their litterbox, and cat litter can get expensive. I love all living creatures equally, but considering these items are lacking strong arguments, I feel like defending dogs. - KuV 5 Comments
Warrior cat series is amazing. But I think that dogs have more books than cats do. My personal favorite dog book being 'The Art of Racing in the Rain" by Garth Stein. - BlueberryCatfish
I mean the warriors series id the only good. Everything else is a god awful picture book about a random internet cat. - ClovertheAverageCat
None of you ever cared to look up Dog books, did you? You can't prove they have better books if you don't even know the Dog books. I tried reading Warriors, not so into it. I LOVED "All because of Winn-Dixie". I recommend it, it's about a Dog, and a Girl that rescued him. It proves the awesomeness of Dogs.
Well, I know Winn Dixie and Survivors are actually really good books. But Warriors is really popular, too.
Reply below and tell me which books you like more.
Just because something is domesticated does not make it smarter. Do you even WANT to know how many times I have had to say that? "They can learn tricks." Cats can too. I taught my cat to shake my hand, stay (Only if he's not being stubborn) and almost to roll over, and it isn't even a certain breed. Dogs have been dumbed down by humans, while cats have independence and pride. So what if they attack you? They have a reason to be threatened, while a dog follows the order of whoever buys it first. Just because something has a bigger brain does not mean that it is smarter, it means that it can hold more information. A Neanderthal has a bigger brain than a human according to science, but did they have civilization? No. Did they known how to cure diseases? No. Having a larger brain only means that you can hold more information. Plus, we are talking about EVERY breed of dog, not only big ones. You know, the dogs that were bred with close family members. Hey, remember when everyone ...more
Nope, wrong. Dogs are smarter. They can sense when you're down, when you're happy, when you want to be left alone, etc. They can also actually understand your commands, they can smell cancer in humans, and they know that some Cats WILL NOT HESITATE to claw out their eyes if they get too close to each other, especially if the Dog is small, like a Maltese. Dogs can also smell and dig out bombs and explosives. Cats? Nope. Maybe it's because they're stupid, or its because they just simply hate everyone but themselves, and maybe SOME other animal or two. But more likely, it's both. Sorry if you consider me a hater, but this was bubbling inside me for so long and now that I FINALLY found a way to let it out, I did. I'm probably overreacting.
It's simply because a majority of people can't understand cat's body language. Everyone knows about dogs wagging their tails when they're happy, and tails drooping when a dog is sad. - ClovertheAverageCat
Dogs may have bigger brains, but do they use them? No. Have you ever seen six cats pulling a sled? Of course not, because they're too smart to get pushed around, just like humans.
Dogs are smarter, no offense or hate. Cats are pretty smart, too, you know.V 2 Comments
I agree that cats might be better at some things than dogs but honestly this is unlikely. Because dogs are more useful in a situation. Cause cats can protect people but dogs can be more useful since dogs look up to you more. Lions may be more dangerous but house cats are only dangerous with claws which I usually the problem. Dogs can also sniff out bombs, drugs, and crooks. But it usually depends on the breed. Cats are better at killing rodents. I've been around both pets and they are both lovely. I'll have to chose dogs because they usually tend to be more affectionate. I respect your onpinoins. I didn't make this to hate or be defensive just to share my thoughts.
WRONG. Both Dogs and cats have skills of their own, and skills they share. Like, Dogs can smell and dog out explosives and not die, but Cats can't. And yet, Cats can groom themselves, Dogs can't. Dogs can guide blind people, Cats can't. Cats can sheathe and unsheathe their claws, Dogs can't. But both can until very well (if you deny that Dogs are good hunters, look it up. Wolves and Foxes are actually also Dogs, and they're good Hunters, even better than Cats are), both can be trained, both can be hilarious, both can be cute, both can be ugly.
Cats can't bark. They rarely fetch. They need way more training to do a simple command. Lots of these arguments for cats are hypocritical or just plain ignorant. - Ku
Cats can't really smell bombs... just saying. I like both animals.V 5 Comments
Cats ARE cleaner because they groom themselves with their tongue. They have a tongue that's like a comb.
Well You don't get wet random biased person
Try rubbing yourself with your tongue and call yourself clean.
Whenever a guest comes to my house, my dog will run to them and bark like crazy while trying to "greet" them (she looks like she's trying to ATTACK the guest, she jumps around the guest like crazy and try to bite their sandals/shoe or feet. Luckily, she's just a small Shih Tzu) - BlueFrostOfThunderClan
Just because one puny dog bites you that doesn't make all dogs bad.
Sometimes, yeah, Cats do. Dogs are friendly.
Except for mine. LOL. He is a weirdo...V 3 Comments
You obviously are just jealous I HATE YOU WHO EVER SAID: More like: The Cat wanted all the attention and hated the Dog, so he/she pushed he boy away. The Dog was never dangerous.
The dog was never dangerous? The dog left extreme bite marks on the boys leg and had to be rushed to the hospital. - BlueberryCatfish
More like: The Cat wanted all the attention and hated the Dog, so he/she pushed he boy away. The Dog was never dangerous.
Oh Please, then why did the dog come
The dog WAS dangerous! Why not look this up! Pitbull pictures!
You may see some bloody you don't wanna see!
What about this dog? Tiberian mastiff pics!
That's a dumb reason. - GamingGoku757
One day in my tiny condo, my cat Oreo was sleeping in my bed with me. I was asleep, and while I was, a smoke alarm was going off. I am quite of heavy sleeper but my cat wasn't. She scratched my face, so I would get up and get out of my house. If I didn't have that cat, I wouldn't be here today, writing this comment.
Still that's one cat dogs save life's by sniffing out bombs and sniffing out crooks. Plus dogs are used in the army and cats are only used for killing rodents.
Dogs can save lives, too. This is very ignorant. - Ku
Oh please, Dogs save lives WAY MORE than cats. - GamingGoku757V 6 Comments
Wow you need to learn your facts and read books dude. You probably watch YouTube all day and don't read books
Dogs do, too. There's a reason Dogs follow commands: they listen. And there's a reason Cats DON'T follow commands: they don't listen.
Cats will even give advice, in the form of nuzzles and purrs. Dogs just stand there, until you wonder why, and you find out they were busy pooping on your white carpet.
Stop it with the stereotype, and usually it's the owners fault because they didn't take the dog outside. - GamingGoku757
They do listen. But not in the way you would think. - Catsarah123
Dogs poop everywhere, and expect you to follow after them, cleaning their dudes up for them. Cats, on the other hand, bury their poop, and never make you see it.
As if. Dogs can be trained, but you're just LAZY. You don't even deserve a Dog.
I HONESTLY DON'T CARE! DOGS ARE STUPID IDIOTS!
Dogs love you a lot more! Cats just hiss and growl and scratch and bite. They distrust you. All they care about is how much food you give them, not about you. Dogs, though; they love you! I can't believe all these jeleaus Cat Lovers are just twisting the truth. Tings like: Cats love you, Cats reduce risk of heart disease, etc., is actually Dogs love you, Dogs reduce risk of heart disease, etc., but a bunch of overpowered Cat People were so jeleaus and rude and egoistic that they took he truth and twisted it. Seriously; truth hurts, but this isn't the way to deal with it. Dogs deserve credit for beige faithful and loving and kind and a good companion, unlike Cats.
Dogs act like they love you; but if you do a bit of research, you'll find out why they actually act like that. Cats love you, care for you, and you hear millions of stories about how cats saved lives.
Whoever said that "Dogs don't actually love you", you are truly mistaken. Don't trust everything you see on the Internet. Perhaps, you should, instead of doing"a little bit of research", do a lot of research before confirming everything.
I have nothing against Cats, I just think they aren't meant to be pets, but are meant to be out in the wild.
Dogs are ready, too. They will let you hug them even though they dislike the feeling, but they love you, and will do anything for you.
Dogs are fat and weak cats are purrrfect and strong also fact cats are stronger as their stanima is higher
They're only fat if you over feed them, and they certainly aren't weak. - KuV 1 Comment
THAT'S BECAUSE CATS CAN'T HOWL! They do, though, meow and constantly make unnatural, weird noises.
Okay, people. Dogs will howl all night and cats will yowl all night. Deal with it. It's the way these animals are.
They just snuggle with you and purr themselves to sleep. Dogs will howl relentlessly until you get out the gun.V 1 Comment
Dogs don't. If there was a house fire, your cat would wake you up to get you out safely, but dogs would squirm out the back door.
Dogs only save other people. The cats will save you.
To the comment about the housefire - one of the reasons on top ten reasons why dogs are better is that but theother way around.V 2 Comments
Dogs also bring inner peace, joy, and hope. Seriously, though; get your facts straight before you post. Cats are the ones who are just with you until you have no more cat food, or money for it. Then they just run away, after they've used you enogh. Dogs will stick with you in all your ups and downs.
Dogs just want to be fed their next meal. Cats will sit in your lap and console you until you're okay, and cats'll make sure you are.
Cats just eat then they leave to hang out with their cat friendss
If you aren't convinced, read this article again!
This is a terrible reason. It's not even a reason.V 1 Comment
There have been a LOT more cases where Cats run off than Dogs. Dogs will stay faithful until the end, Cats don't even care about you: they will only go where they have more food. That's their goal. A Dog's goal, though, is to help you in both your ups and downs for as long as they live. So yeah, CATS RUN OFF, Dogs stay by your side. Again, twisted version of the truth. Made for desperate Cat Lovers. Seen so much of that. I had like, 2 Dogs, none of them ever ran off. I had one Cat, and he just ran away one day when we didn't give him a more-than-needed food amount.
One time, my cat got loose and the next day, she was sleeping at the back door. This happened with my other cat, but she was crying at my neighbor's door...
I disagree sure dogs run off but cats don't often stay near you as much
False my cat follows me everywhere I take her shopping because she sits on my shoulderV 1 Comment
I meant "There is a reason why they aren't worsted ANYMORE"* (Spelling Mistake)
There is a reason why they rent worshiped ANYMORE.V 1 Comment
True, it doesn't make us lazy. But the cats are lazy, though.V 1 Comment
Yes they do! Dogs look up to you, cats look down, therefore they challenge youV 1 Comment
That's because Cats can't bark. Logic, people! Dogs still make noises though.V 1 Comment
Cool. Neither do Dogs.
Yeah RIGHT! Cats always think they're Queens and Kings and that they're the best, and that you're their slave.V 1 Comment
I'm pretty sure you meant "Unlike Cats, DOGS don't try to kill you every time you pet them".
Okay Who is this biased person rejecting everything
